Inspiration on the running path

Actually, more hilarious than inspiring.

During yesterday’s evening run, I saw a squirrel dragging a 10″ long Italian hero loaf across the path; an amazing score from the tourist information center along the Bronx River Parkway (which was just nearby), or perhaps something that was thrown from a passing car.

The squirrel panicked when it saw me, assuming I was going to swoop in and grab its treasure. So I stopped and watched. Squirrel dragged the loaf, like a canoe, over the path and into the grass and safety of trees. I wonder what the squirrel will do with it.

We’re heading into the city for a 20 mile training run in Central Park. It doesn’t seem that bad out right now. But that will change. At least it’s not raining.
